Grounding
« on: February 05, 2010, 10:25:51 PM »
It's been so long since I've used any vintage equipment that I forgot about the ability to ground these units.

Any gains to doing so?

Thanks,

Lyman

If I don't ground my amp I get some low level hum.

If you mean the screw, knob or whatever on the back panel of a vintage receiver, it is not for grounding that piece, it is for grounding a TT to that piece.
